Fashion Doll Pattern - 1964
I found this the other day. Simplicity 5673; copyright 1964. The envelope is worn on the corners, but the pattern is uncut.
The back says it is "Suitable for such Dolls as Annette, Mitzie, Babs, Kay, Polly Jr., Tina, Barbie, Midge and Gina." I don't remember Kay, Polly Jr., Tina, or Gina dolls. It doesn't mention Tressie. (I had a Tressie, and I remember that some of Barbie's clothes were too tight for her. Maybe that is why she isn't listed.)
If you find a vintage fashion doll clothing pattern and want to use it for making clothes for the newer fashion dolls, you'll probably have to do some altering. The newer dolls just aren't built the same as the older ones.
Please let me know if you are or aren't interested in vintage patterns. If you aren't, I won't waste your or my time. :)
